What a Blast!

If you missed our Alchemy trunk show last week, we have some highlights to share with you here.  We had a blast, ate some great food, and tried on some exquisite garments designed and created by Alchemy.  And prizes, did we mention prizes?

You can't have a great party without great food.  Delictable Delights provided by Iron Grill Korean BBQ.

The prizes weren't too shabby either.  Autographed books by Gina Wilde are always a winner!  Lucky Sara!

Special Thanks to Jan Hurwitz, Gina and Austin Wilde for providing us with some of the most UHHHMAZING fibers available anywhere on the planet.  You guys are the BEST!

If you special ordered some of these special yarns that night we're expecting them in about 3 weeks.  We hope everyone had a great time!

I don't know if you missed it last time but the yarn tasting with Cascade was a blast and we have another one of these little shindigs tonight at 5pm but this time with Alchmey Yarn. Here's what you missed and an idea of what you'll see this time:

You'll see yarn, obviously, but you don't just look, you get to knit with a bit of it too! You get to see what you like and feel different fiber blends. Bring some needles and have some fun.

Examples of the yarn knit up in garments and projects. This gives you a better idea of how a particular yarn would look in a big project.

Food!!!  We always like to have a little something for you and this is quite the event so we have a lot of something for you. Yum........If you just came for the food and company I wouldn't blame you.

And last but certainly not least there were give-aways.......and their might be some this time too. ;) Good yarn and possibly some for free?????? Come on now, that's pretty awesome.

We hope to see you here tonight at 5pm and that's you find a little something you like.

Hello my name is Sheepie. Real original right? I didn't come up with it. Some silly girl at a yarn store gave me the name. Anyhow, I thought I might tell you my story.

I was born on a little farm in Vietnam. I had a grand old time running around in the meadow and napping under the trees. I mean the only time I wasn't content was when those yapping dogs would try and get me to go a certain way. This one time I pretended to be lost and had them chasing me around for hours. They were too tired the next day to bug me.

Well the time came where I was supposedly "grown-up" and had to pack up my fiber and head out. I heard about this factory in Portland......somewhere in the USA I guess, that was looking for some adorable sheep. I mean look at me? How could I not get the job? So I headed on out there for an interview. Needless to say that when I heard I would have to wear an apron and get sharp things stuck into that apron I had second thoughts.

The managers explained that yeah, there was some risk of being poked and yeah as a dude I might have to wear a pink apron but I had a chance to be taken into a warm, loving home full of people who adore me and play with my hair all day long. As you can see I took the job, but this is only phase one. Now I need to find a permanent home and please for the love of God......a better name.
